DACHTOBERFEST FORUM: ASK THE EXPERTS
Our ask the expert series is conducted by area veterinary and behavioral specialists who address dachshund health issues such as intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), compete with discussions and demos on proactive preemptive care and prevention, and various treatments including a conservative crate rest and meds, alternative/holistic therapy, and surgery. General health issues common to all dachshunds, including weight management and oral hygiene, and behavior and training issues are also covered.
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE
All sponsorship and individual donations are fully deductible as a charitable contribution to the fullest extent allowed by law due to our 501(c)(3) status, and you will receive an acknowledgment of your donation for tax purposes. We are a young foundation and are very much dependent on the generosity of corporate and individual donations. We plan to continue fundraising all year long to help dachshunds in need. Every dollar helps! Thank you in advance for your generosity.
COME ONE, COME ALL

Dachshunds own our hearts and make us happy. Join us! We sincerely appreciate your time and consideration and hope to see you on October 3. Together, with your help, we can make this a world class gathering!
